A diagram to assemble and dis- assemble to replace a new hard drive

\015 How do i get a diagram on how to replace my hard drive on my gateway solo 9550/\015

Answers :

I can suggest you without a diagram if you are only replacing the hard drive
First you disconnect the computer power then open the cabinet.there will be two cables from the Hard drive
1.Data cable ( this will be connected to the mother board
2.Powercable ( This is from the power supply unit that is the smps)
Remove the cables if the cables are SATA note the Positions
If it is ATA then you have to be carefull in reconnecting with the Hard drive
(ie the IDE cable from the harddisk to the motherboard had to be fixed properly seeing the no pin connection in the cable as well as on the motherboard and the red wire from the power supply has to be next to the red side of the data cable)
The harddrive will be fixed with the screws remove the harddrive and fix the new harddrive with the cables as stated above and screw it again
Http://repair4laptop.org/contrib/gateway_solo_9550/gateway_solo_9550_notebook_disassembly.pdf Will give you the diagram....but it shouldn't be needed. Bottom of laptop, with hinges facing away from you. Lower Right corner there is a 3 and a half inch panel. 2 screws removed, lift panel. There's your hard drive. If it's got screws holding it down...it should...then remove those screws, and gently slide it right until its out of the mount. reverse steps to install new one.
